Winter’s Bone- May 24th

Winter’s Bone (2010)
English- Drama
Rated “R”
Runtime- 100 min.
dir. Debra Granik
 

I thought this movie looked dumb, but it actually surprised me with some of the poignant scenes.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

A fairly interesting story about a strong young woman taking care of her family against an uncaring world.

Acting: 1/2

Jennifer Lawrence is great as the solitary lead, but the ensemble is weak at times.

Photography/Set: 2/2

Really detailed sets that immerse the audience in the world of the characters.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

In this case, the absence of a major soundtrack really helps to focus the audience on the action on-screen.

Misc: 1/2

Good, but a little long for what content is there.

VERDICT: 7/10

Worth a watch for fans of independent films or niche dramas.
